NEW Elan E6 Wins Nomination for the European Yacht of the Year Award
The new Elan E6 is now officially nominated for the European Yacht of the Year Award (EYOTY) in the category of best performance cruiser.
The E6 was designed by a “dream team” of specialists: Humphreys Yacht Design did the naval architecture, Pininfarina did the styling, Gurit refined the composite production and Elan led the project and constructed the yacht. It’s intended for serious sailors that expect great performance but intend to use it for leisure with family and friends as well. The EYOTY nomination is an important confirmation of the success of the project and is the most sought-after accolade in the yachting business and confirmation of excellence.
The winner will be announced at the Boot Dusseldorf Boat Show in January
The Elan E6 has had an incredible first few months since its launch in March, winning the prestigious design award in the category for Sailing Yachts at the 11th International Yacht & Aviation Awards in May. Then in June winning the Red Dot: Product Design 2022 Award. Such accolades speaks volumes about the E6’s impact on the market.
Director of Elan Yachts, Marko Škrbin, was delighted to receive the nomination and commented.
“I am very proud of the team that designed and constructed the Elan E6 and thankful to the EYOTY judges for the nomination. The E6 was a challenging project, one that pushed the boundaries of what’s possible for a fully fitted performance cruiser. We’re talking about a yacht that weighs 11 tons at 11.1 m of hull length, looks like a piece of art, and is both incredibly fast and comfortable. We wanted to create a perfect yacht that provides the excitement of a regatta, but also plenty of comfort on the water. Pininfarina added flair and style to the yacht, Gurit pushed our composite capabilities to an even higher level and Humphreys Yacht Design used their experience to create a powerful hull and sail plan. I could not be happier with the result.”
The first Elan E6 arrives to Australia in March next year and available for delivery soon after.
